Can we ask GOD for "anything"?

Everyone ('pas')

- "some" of all types

Will

- God's purpose, desire; what God wishes to be done by us

Glorified

- praised, magnified, honored, dignified

Law + the Prophets

- Old Testament Scriptures

God will answer 'yes' to a prayer that:

1) glorifies HIM ("God-centered," not "me-centered")
2) doesn't harm us
3) isn't Unnecessary + is good
4) is asked as a result repentance
5) is asked by His children (i.e.- His 'elect')
6) isn't selfish or contrary to His will
7) demonstrates that HE answered it
